Holiday Party 2024



2023 Holiday Party Summary




The Danville DSCBA office was transformed into a winter wonderland on Sunday, December 3rd, 2023 for the annual member Holiday Party! A good time was had by all!


Santa and his elves were on hand to meet families and give out a special gift to kids. 

A Holiday Boutique featured a wonderful assortment of DS-themed items and other gifts.

Back by popular demand, member Christi Hockel aka "Christi the Beadmaker", offered her hand-beaded jewelry. Our Program Manager, Michelle Slape, also hosted a booth with her beautiful “designs by MRS”. Thank you to them both for kindly donating back to the DSCBA!


Guests had the opportunity to purchase tickets for a $750 value Holiday Gift Basket Drawing. Cole Kelley was the lucky winner!

Guests were treated to live musical performances from Danville GirlsChorus Honor Choir and Tri-M Music Honor Society.
